ICT minister and his Chinese counterpart boost cooperation
Korean ICT Minister Choi Yang-hee met with his Chinese counterpart Miao Wei yesterday in Seoul, where the two signed a memorandum of understanding, making official Korea and China’s joint partnership to develop information and communications technologies (ICT) and respond to potential cyber threats.
This is a follow-up measure to a pledge made in June 2013 between President Park Geun-hye and Chinese President Xi Jinping at a summit in Beijing, where it was decided that the two would form joint teams to respond to future hacking threats and develop new ICT technologies together. Cybersecurity officials from both nations will have the authority to track down hacking rings.
Korea and China will start R&D projects and talent exchange programs early next year in key ICT sectors.
